Special Housing Arrangements

It is quite common for IPs to have students (and teachers if they so elect) stay at the same prearranged apartment hotel for a better price. Students usually stay two, three or even four together in an apartment with cooking amenities to further reduce expenses. In this case, the project coordinator pays directly to the hotel thus avoiding delays of individual compensations.

Arrangements for such a scenario are under negotiations with apartment hotels in Ammoudara, about 5km from the Physics Dept. of the Univ. of Crete and close to the beach. Unfortunately public transport from Ammoudara to the university requires two bus changes, takes about an hour and costs about 3 euros. Thus, it is suggested that classes be accessed either by private car rental (see below) or taxi shared amongst 4 participants at a total price of about 8 euros.

Special effort will made this year to secure a possible shuttle service at an affordable price.

Car rental

Previous IP experience has shown that car rental shared amongst the students can be particularly beneficial both for going back and forth to the lectures on a daily basis, but also for exploring the island over the weekends.

We therefore highly endorse this idea and will help with its implementation. Special car rental deals can be arranged through the CPOTS IP. Interested students should contact the project coordinator by e-mail.
